Mark Victor Hansen's Advice

If you can read and you have a home based business the chances are very good you are familiar with what Mark Victor Hansen has written in his Chicken Soup for the Soul series. If you were wise, you followed his good advice.

Of particular interest to me is something he wrote about expanding our imaginations. I suppose the reason it appealed to me is that I rather fancy FUN. If you know me well, you know that I will not be bothered to spend my time and energy on anything that is not full blown FUN.

Is it the little kid in me? Maybe. But Mark Victor Hansen advises us to remember the magic of our youth. Do you remember spending time daydreaming, lying on your back to study the patterns of the clouds? Do you recall running until you were breathless just for the joy of moving? Can you think back to times when you shrieked with pure delight and laughed until you hurt?

We have oodles of brain cells when we are born that just wait for us to give them direction. We are born rich, whether we acknowledge that or don't, and yet we get programmed by family, teachers, preachers, maybe even the conversations inside our own heads that we are this, that or the other and we suppose we are not good enough or not deserving enough...the list goes on and on.

Mark Victor Hansen advises us to "Predetermine the objectives you want to accomplish. Think big, act big and set out to accomplish big results."

We must focus on whatever we wish to have, be or do.

As internet marketers we must stop tagging after every scheme that comes down the pike, we must quit running from one coaching program to the next and signing up for every offer that comes into our inboxes. Find your niche. Do your due diligence. Be patient with yourself and the process. Celebrate your victories. Gather like minded people around you and form Mastermind Groups. And do remember to have fun with all of it.

Don't be attached to the outcome; follow your passion and learn as you go. Do be creative with your approach to your home based business and let your passion dictate the direction you take your internet marketing business. Solve other peoples' problems. Give them more than they expect. Nurture all your relationships. Cultivate creativity in every area of your life. An for goodness' sake, HAVE SOME FUN with your work!

All righty, then. I think I'll go jump on the trampoline now that the kids are back in school.
